Opelousas is planning a parade Saturday to honor hometown hero and New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson.

Henderson had seven catches for 63 yards in the Super Bowl win over Indianapolis.

Officials say Henderson's time in Opelousas will be limited because he has other events scheduled both that morning and evening.

But they say Henderson will stay around for a short autograph session at the stadium after a post-parade ceremony.

Opelousas Mayor Donald Cravins Sr. will give him the keys to the city and a street sign
commemorating the city's decision to rename Jefferson Street in his honor.
